I cannot express enough just how thrilled I am that you have popped on by my design studio & blog. Now I recommended you start here because I thought we should take some time to get to know each other a little.

I'm Elle, a California girl transplanted to the Midwest with a goal of landing in New Orleans some time in the next two years. I'm self taught in all aspects of design, harking back to the bygone era of MySpace custom flash layouts. I have an eye for pattern and a love for color that makes me a perfect candidate for working as a web designer. Combining my love of design with coding and helping others and I am a natural teacher of all things blog related. My first ever blog was created on AOL Hometowns back n 2003 so I have had a lot of time and experience watching Blog Land grow and evolve and become a place of sharing stories, reviewing products and even making enough money to help support their families. 

Elle Ay Esse began as a personal and lifestyle blog in 2013. Within a year it had risen to be a source of information on blogging, networking and design tips and tricks. In 2014 I created the EAE Design Studio and began taking clients. Working intimately together to create the perfect mix of branding and personality, I started noticing an increase in inquiries from my clients and other bloggers asking for tips on growing their blog, brand consistency and ways to monetize successfully with both brands and sponsors. In 2015 I launched my first creative coaching modules and began toying with the idea of creating a more extensive series of products designed by a blogger for bloggers and detailing all of the answers to the many questions I received via email.  

Let's get more personal on Instagram!
